And amazing view from the top of the parking garage free to go up. A fresh market food eatery. The food from the market is cooked here. If you love pasta as much as I do, make sure not to miss this restaurant. This picture was taken from the table I was seated at that was inside a trolley car inside the restaurant. Another nice view for az photographers. What a view from the .... Yes we went up. St. Mary's Basilica If you want this prospective go here. Just look at the stairs. There are lots of cool eateries, coffee shops, shops and art galleries in this location. It's the place to go if you want funky! #colorful The first thing you'll see when you walk in! A huge 3 story climbing structure. It looks like it's straight outta Harry Potter. Psssst, and parents are allowed on it too! Had no idea about this Japanese friendship Garden it was kind of a cool place only four dollars to get in. This weather made it a really quiet place to sit and talk to someone there are also Coy Fish and a tea shop but it was closed for us. Political commentary as street art. For the #market contest.
Pretty cool little place to walk, and some of the old buildings have been turned into cute restaurants. nothing can beat arizonas sunsets❤️ Savoring the Fried Ice Cream. Flavored with strawberry, caramel and chocolate. Delicioso!
#restaurant Rooftop sunset, Phoenix, Arizona. Weirdest Coolest Restaurant in Phoenix. We walked in and found a bar, a food booth, a dance floor with people blues dancing, a boxing ring, hula hoops, corn hole, and more. Very random but very awesome.
More on http://www.ajauntwithjoy.com Voted one of the best spots for pizza in the country, this relatively small spot can get packed. Show up early or look for a spot at the bar. This is the Margherita with proscuitto on the left and Wiseguy on the right. If they're on a wait, head to the pub across from them for a pint while you wait. The hike up Camelback Mountain is certainly not for the faint of heart, but the views along the way are definitely worth it!! #hiking State mural Very nice and clean Japanese Garden in Phoenix. Odd combination but everything isnatural and cooked fresh Home of the Diamondbacks.
#mlb #az #phoenix An extremely hipster place where you can box play corn hole, use dumbbells or play table tennis.it also has a bar outdoor seating and a store front the food is good but the service is slow. We had a decent stay here at the hostel in Phoenix. Consider this if on a tight budget! We got a private room and it was around $40 total.
More on http://www.ajauntwithjoy.com It was so hot the streets were almost abandoned...but it was worth the heat to see the awesome sunset! Just a cool picture in the inner-city Alice Cooper's chain of restaurants DeSoto houses a bar, multiple little restaurants and common seating both inside and out. It's a very San Francisco feel in Phoenix. There's really nothing else like it here.
This is from DC Burger and it's called Street art, Roosevelt Row, Phoenix, Arizona Sunrise over Phoenix Very nice Basilica, is the oldest Catholic parish in Phoenix. Underneath a sculpture by Janet Echelman. Saw this in the day then decided to go at night and it had a completely different personality Just a cool vista Just another unique view of Phoenix downtown. Beautiful little tree framed nicely by the desert sky and right across the street from an awesome pizza place in downtown Phoenix, AZ. All ingredients fresh and flown in from Italy. Well worth checking out. They don't make
Them like this anymore. #AquaTrove desert style The mouthwatering Grilled Shrimp Platter.
#restaurant #mexicanfood Nice & Clean Japanese Garden in Phoenix,AZ Great veranda for morning coffee. Near the State Capitol you can witness bills being discussed by Arizona senators. Beautiful sunsets! Everything is pink and red! But it doesn't really cool off much-Phoenix is hot!!! Great place to #hike in #phoenix! #az #arizona #nature #mountains #outdoors Best place to catch the sunset in Phoenix View of Chase Field and other downtown Phoenix landmarks from the air.

Love brick buildings. My first night in Phoenix, where it was 95 degrees at night. While walking around downtown Phoenix, I came across some street art. This is taken from my home in west Phoenix the sunrises and sunsets are the best. Im always with a camera. The oldest Catholic Church in Phoenix. Detail of
The lobby ceiling. Construction was completed in 1929 and it was saved from the wrecking ball in 1984 in a grass roots movement. Lunch in the shade and people watch to the sound of the fountain. Butterflies Interesting little find when we were driving through the state capital. There's a whole park dedicated to the wars, first responders, and pieces of American history. Beautiful pieces of art scattered throughout. Unique artwork Downtown Phoenix Neat find in downtown Phoenix during #ICON14 this year Really good food and it's open really really late and it's also priced well spot looks like an hold converted house. Fun. @ the Club Smith Pool & Cabana Walked around here last night..cool architecture. :-)
